NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks’ NFC West showdown against the Cardinals this Sunday– At 4-4, the Seahawks need this win at home against the Cardinals who lead the Seahawks by two games in the standings if they are to have any chance at another divisional crown. It won’t be easy however as the Cardinals are playing some of the best football we’ve seen from them in a very long time.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, critiques the Seahawks victory over the 49ers on Thursday night– Despite the win, this was not a good night for Russell Wilson. His two interceptions were both in the “really bad” category as far as his decision making is concerned. Both times his receivers were covered by two or more defenders. There was no need to force either of those throws and keep the 49ers hopes alive.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Hawks home opener against the Bears– The tardy one, Kam Chancellor, finally reported this week. It’s still somewhat of a question as to whether or not he plays against the Bears this week. Reports say he’s in great physical shape but gym shape is not game shape. Only games get you there and Kam missed all of the pre-season that is designed to get guys into game shape.
NWSB writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, previews the Seahawks in Week 2– Next for the Hawks it’s the Green Bay Packers, on the frozen tundra, no less. To call this game a tough match up early on for Seattle is a bit of an understatement. The Seahawks are going to have their hands full. Here’s a few of the things I’ll be watching closely for as the Seahawks try to take it to the Pack Sunday night.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, looks at the Week 1 Seahawks’ loss to the Ram– The tackling by the Seahawks defense was suspect at times and solid at others. Even guys like Bobby Wagner and Michael Bennett missed key tackles that led to big gains by the Rams. Missed tackles led to the Rams converting on 3rd and 10+ on several occasions. Those are times you expect the Seahawks D to get off the field and they just didn’t get it done.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider, Brian Scott, weighs in on the Chancellor and Bennett contract disputes– With Chancellor staying home for camp and the Seahawks appearing unwilling to budge on their policy of not renegotiating contracts until they have a year or less left on them this could easily turn into a prolonged dispute. Despite whichever side you might find yourself on in this contract battle you have to applaud the job that GM, John Schneider, and Pete Carroll have done to keep most of this team together.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his Super Bowl preview: The Seahawks were tremendously bad last week at protecting the football. I don’t see any possible way they can win the game over Tom Brady if they turn the ball over five times again. Fortunately, turning the ball over that many times is not something we have seen from the Seahawks often.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott breaks down the Seahawks playoff win over the Panthers. For the Seahawks, it means that they advance to the NFC Championship game.

NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his takeaways from the Seahawks decisive victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Had this run occurred in Seattle I have no doubt that UW would have been registering seismic activity coming from Century Link yet again. Instead, this run silenced what had been a boisterous Cardinal crowd. Lynch finished with 113 yards, two touchdowns on just 10 carries.
NWSB Writer and Seattle Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks Thanksgiving Day matchup against the 49ers. Put simply, this game is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object and I’m not even talking about your digestive track after dinner either. No, it’s about which team hates the other enough to beat them and likely knock the other out of playoff contention.
NWSB Writer and Seahawks Insider Brian Scott gives us his preview of the Seahawks game in Carolina this weekend along with a special note to Safety Earl Thomas– shut up and stop blaming the refs for the Seahawk’s penalty problems. With Seattle still struggling with penalties however, that could be just enough for the Panthers to send the Seahawks to their third straight loss.
